Monitored traffic on Island Ave, normal traffic with a few issues addressed reported around the

new crosswalk sign.

Report of a child driving a golf cart, subjects located and the rental was terminated

Gave SA to Central Ave

Information

I removed the New Island Ave pedestrian crosswalk sign in front of Hannigan 's Market. I will ask the City Traffic Division to evaluate that placement of that sign and the safety issues with it.

The fire engines and ambulance cannot make it through that area safely if any vehicles are parked on
the street near it. One vehicle has be hit and several vehicle vs pedestrian near misses have been
reported. It seems drivers are more worried about hitting a vehicle or sign than watching the crosswalk for people.

Please message me if you feel the need.

Please do not call the police department to report it stolen.
